Populo Quest 16 Speed Gravel Bike

  • Urban streets and gravel roads are what the Populo Quest was designed to conquer. The Quest is a bike that can have multiple personalities and be ready for whatever roads you want to take it on. Its frame and fork are made out of 4130 Chromoly steel, so it’s strong, yet comfortable, on or off road. Quest is equipped with disc brakes, so no matter what trail or type of weather you’re riding in, you can stop on a dime. Shimano's proven Claris groupset means you have reliable shifting and braking every time and the wide range of gearing that comes standard on the Quest means you can pack this mule with as many bags and storage options as you’ll need for your next adventure ride. Let the Populo Quest expand the roads you ride.

    Quest ships to you with 700x32 tires suitable for rough roads, but the frame and fork can even accommodate wider tires with knobby tread, should you choose to venture onto dirt roads, gravel, cyclocross, etc.

    POPULO QUEST 16 SPEED GRAVEL BIKE

    Giving it a 3 for a couple reasons. #1 The fork was on backwards (seriously!!!), so it would cause feet to hit the front tire and other things. Number 2: Rear derailleur housing was bent, so it impeded with shifting to either high or low gear. Other than that, did the tune-up. I'm a former bike mechanic, so I caught these flaws right away. If a newbie or someone not so familiar with bike mechanics purchased this bike, they may have paid more than a tune-up.

    Bike looks great. It’s missing the front wheel retention clip. Directions are terrible. But there’s not that much left to assemble. Front derailleur looks to be too loose and will need adjustment. We will see, I have not ridden her yet.

    Poorly manufactured bike

    assembly instructions sucked and once built it was trying to solve one problem after the other. brakes do not work properly and might as well not be there at all. tried to contact 6ku for help and was told to take the bike to a local shop. pedal has already broken as insert in arm stripped after a couple rides. Really like lightweight frame and handlebar configuration but does no good if the functional pieces of the bikes work. Just want money back.

    Dylan, sorry that this bike did not meet your expectation, feel free to reach out to us at info@6ku.com so that we can rectify the situation.

    Populo Quest 16 Speed Gravel Bike

    Very easy to assemble but I had to bring it to a shop because the shifters and brakes weren't working properly. Everything is great now and its a really smooth and fun bike to ride.

    Great value bike, delivered quickly as forecast!

    I purchased the Populo Quest as a versatile city bike and it exceeded my expectations, especially for the price. I added a rear rack and lights and it was ready to go. It is fast, comfortable and has good components for this price point. Couldn't be happier with the purchase.
